Planning a Spin, Spinning a Plan

I have taken this braid of FatCatKnits superwash merino in Moxie.

I have split it into six (almost) equal bumps.  I think one of them might have one more gram or so.

I have started to spin the first bobbin for some three ply sock yarn.

Why Fiber Friends Are Awesome

I have wonderful fiber friends.  My friend Linda sent me a package that I received on Saturday that made my weekend.

She sent me two braids of Two If By Hand Superwash Merino, a handspun shawl, and a braid of fiber from Gritty Knits in Fish Bowl.  The bag says I Spin Yarn, with a spinning wheel in place of the word spin.  I need to get a project in it soon.  THANK YOU LINDA!!! I loved it.
